Annedotus
(Gr.)
The generic name for the Dragons or Men‐Fishes, of which there were five. The historian Berosus narrates that there rose out of the Erythræan Sea on several occasions a semi‐dæmon named Oannes or Annedotus, who although part animal yet taught the Chaldeans useful arts and everything that could humanise them. (See Lenormant Chaldean Magic, p. 203, and also “Oannes”.) [w.w.w.] (TG).
